NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art will be holding an exhibition of medieval treasures from Germany’s Hildesheim (HIHL’-dehs-hym) Cathedral.
The cathedral was designated a UNESCO (yoo-NEHS’-koh) world cultural heritage site in 1985.
It contains one of the most complete objects of ecclesiastical (ih-klee-zee-AS’-tih-kuhl) furnishings and treasures in Europe. Many of them were made between the years 1000 and 1250.
The Met exhibition will feature about 50 objects from Sept. 17 to Jan. 5. Most have never been seen outside Europe.
The highlights include illuminated manuscripts, opulent jeweled crosses, and enamel and ivory decorated altars.
The cathedral is currently undergoing a major renovation.
